Hi All, my understanding is that we all fall into a class of CF. (see pic). Any idea how covid19 will react in CFers? The vaccine works on RNA not DNA according to this article and if i am reading it right. Any scientific geeky people here to explain this? Thank you!

I think it should be fine. I don't see anything that requires a CFTR protein being involved in the vaccine, so I would think it should work on CF people the same way as non-CF people.

Thank you. Can you explain mNRA? I am wondering how that is different from DNA.
